I think it is a fun/silly idea, but I agree that many of the names lean
rather heavily to scatological humor, or are otherwise inappropriate.
Rather than dismissing the idea, however, what if we re-wrote it? We could
create almost a 'secret Cub Nicknames' list, like the old 'secret Indian
name' used in camps years ago (according to lore).
Anyone interested in trying this out? Let me know, and we'll hack together a
list to pass on!
